New Delhi: 'Black Friday' protest march, which was announced by Shiromani Akali Dal(SAD) on the completion of one year of the commandment of the three farms laws, the party decided to seal the Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib and the Delhi borders.
They further claimed that Punjab registered vehicles will be stopped at the Delhi borders.
"All Delhi borders have been sealed and Punjab vehicles are being stopped. While all others pass, Punjabis are being told that our entry has been restricted. Our peaceful voices have seemingly scared the powers that be," they said.
"Looking at the number of farmers and Akali Dal cadre coming for the protest today, Rakab Ganj Sahib is being cordoned off to stop Punjabis from entering. This is a reminder of dark dictatorial times," the party tweeted.
